    Disable Taskbar Context Menus for 'press and hold' (drag) ONLY??


    Hi, does anyone know if there's way to disable the taskbar context menus from being triggered by 'press and hold' ONLY? I use a regular pc and mouse, not a touchscreen, I don't need the ability to bring up those menus by dragging, but I don't want to disable them entirely, I just want to right-click to get them. The problem is, whenever I accidentally move my mouse slightly while clicking on a taskbar icon, the context menu pops up, and then I accidentally click something like "Unpin from taskbar" or "Close all windows"... it's SO annoying!

    You could change your Mouse Drag Sensitivity; it will change all other drag scenarios as well though!

    OMG thank you so much, this worked PERFECTLY! Of course this is one of those many Windows things that would be nice to have as a conventional setting rather than going to registry... AND I'm on a work computer, most workplace users don't have access to make those kinds of changes, so I am lucky. Anyway it sure solved my problem! And it's ok that it changed all my drag scenarios because I don't need to drag things by tiny distances. Thanks again!
